Not too long ago, the publisher in Japan named the Japanese version of my book as 《Youngster Forever》. I like this a lot. Growing old with age and seeing friends gradually leaving, the feeling of sadness in my heart is unavoidable. But today is my birthday and I received a message from my friend, a quote from Su Shi (a famous Chinese poet also known as Su Dongpo): “Old man lets loose some youthful wildness, left hand leading a yellow dog, right hand holding a grey eagle. Wine helps broaden bravery, my hair a little frosted on the temples, what harm could that be.” I suddenly felt as though I’m at this stage in life, or should I say that I still feel like a reckless youngster. I want to take this opportunity to say a heartfelt thank you to all my friends and fans for all your birthday wishes. May we all be forever young!

前段时间日本出版社把我的书定名为《永远的少年》,我很喜欢。随着年纪增长,经历朋友离开,难免让人心中伤感,但是今天生日之时,我收到朋友发来的一句苏轼的词:老夫聊发少年狂,左牵黄,右擎苍。酒酣胸胆尚开张,鬓微霜,又何妨。我忽然觉得,越是在人生这个阶段,越应该活得像个恣意少年。感谢影迷和朋友们的生日祝福,愿我们都是永远的少年。
